My husband has been a journeyman lineman for 40 yrs. I pray no one ever has to be a hero to him like that. God bless our lineman.
My husband is a lineman and i pray for him everyday...this photo touches my. Heart....
I have a copy of this photo in a scrapbook.. I cut it out back in the 70's because it was so amazing!
My Dad is a lineman, I will be sharing this with him.
Crazy! And beautiful!
this made me cry. it's moments like this, a triumph of the human spirit, that remind me that i'm not silly for still having faith in people.

My son is a Journeyman Lineman, he was electrocuted. God bless the co-worker that saved his life.
My dad was a power company lineman for the majority of his life, so this photo caught my eye. He passed away recently & we held his memorial service 4 days ago. RIP Dad!
My brother is a lineman and this scares me to death :( amazing story
WOW just wow! what a Hero
Is no one else wondering how he called an ambulance from his car in 1968?
My husband is a linemane. I want to say to all LINEMAN be SAFE.
You know, u r right Alena!! How did they call from their car? Maybe by CB radio?
CB radios were reall popular then. And for emergencys only you could call on the police channel for help
Read the story before you jump to any conclusions
Thank God for you and J.D.
I had to read the story to understand lol(:
My hubby is a Lineman♥
I am so glad he is ok, we all need to keep up our CPR training.
I showed this to my lineman father tonight, he has seen this picture and he said they still so the training for on pole resuscitation
Tearjerker. . .
Did he win a Pulitzer prize in 1968 or was this actually taken in 1968? If that was the case, how does he run to his car to call an ambulance? Cell phones weren't around yet.
Now that's having your partners back! Touching story
I had this picture in a book of Time Life pictures- great book but I lost it!
I'm old enough to remember 1968. While it's true that cell phones didn't exist there were car phones. Big clunky things and quite expensive for the times, but helpful for someone like this reporter who may need to call in a story or an ambulance.
My husband is a utility worker as well this did hit home when this is a risk he faces every day.
probably drove to a payphone or something shirley.
i meant to say Carlaine, not Shirley lol
how absolutely amazing.
they had radio phones in cars for example John Wayne in Hell fighters i think it was and CBs all have emergency channels
Men are truly amazing.
:( Wonderful story....
Remember this when you are wondering why it is taking so long for your electric to come back on. These men can only work so fast.
This is true Stacey, my husband goes from Hero to Zero as soon as they get the lights turned back on.
amazing story and capture.
Wow! In tears!
Thats an amazing story.... These men put their lives on the line daily.
Love seeing this! My hubby is a transmission lineman. Linemen get no credit all they get is yelled at by people to get the power back on and why is it taking so long. People don't realize what all it takes and how dangerous it is.
sobbing....my husband is a lineman and this is one my biggest fears, i pray we never have to be in this situation
WHY THE HELL IS THIS PHOTO FLAGGED? Are you kidding me that a man SAVING THE LIFE OF ANOTHER MAN is to be flagged? WTH? Maybe the person who flagged this couldn't read beyond THEIR erotic thoughts the images brought to THEIR mind?
The Kiss of Life 1968 Pulitzer Prize, Spot News Photography. He survived.

Summer of 1939
